Every month Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments bring their funny yet gut-wrenching and outrageous performance to Joe’s Pub at The Public. Led by the singing tour de force Bridget Everett, “a mouthy, flesh-jiggling early Bette Midler” (New York Times), the band has sold-out venues nationally and instantly developed a cult-like following with their edgy, sexed-up, punk rock cabaret. Each performance is as explosive as it is unpredictable, welcoming special guests as varied as Fred Armisen, Patti LuPone, Flea, Dan Finnerty (The Dan Band), Tonya Pinkins, Marc Shaiman, Erin Markey, Peaches, Neal Medlyn and Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters) while fans such as Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Andy Cohen and Lily Taylor can be seen laughing hysterically in the audience. Imagine Freddie Mercury, Richard Pryor and Sophie Tucker had a baby, and then you might be getting close…maybe. Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments released their debut album of original music in October 2013 featuring the singles Titties, What I Gotta Do and Fuck Shit Up.
Bridget Everett has been called one of the Funniest People in New York by Time Out. Her film, theater and television credits include Inside Amy Schumer, At Least It's Pink, Bridget and Neal are F*cking and Adam Is Watching, Two Broke Girls, Jeffrey Cole Casserole, The Bleep Show w/ Whitney Cummings, Jukebox Jackie and Our Hit Parade. Bridget has appeared at Montreal and Chicago's Just For Laughs Festival, HBO's Aspen United States Comedy Arts Festival, The Adelaide International Cabaret Festival, The San Francisco Sketchfest, and The New York Comedy Festival. Bridget was awarded a grant from Joe's Pub in 2013 as part of their New York Voices series. Rock Bottom was directed by Scott Wittman and written by Everett, along with Marc Shaiman, Wittman, Adrock of the Beastie Boys and Matt Ray. Everett has toured nationally with Amy Schumer.
“I may never play Madison Square Garden... but I AM going to sit on your face.”
— Bridget Everett
“There’s probably no performer as exciting — or, frankly, terrifying — as Bridget Everett...”
“Multiply the mouthy, flesh-jiggling early Bette Midler by one hundred, give her the super-plus-size figure and fashion sense of Divine, the John Waters diva, and the manners of a Flintstone, and you’ve got a rough approximation of Bridget Everett...”
— NY Times
““She’s got guts. She’s fearless.””
— Patti LuPone
